!!The [[Music/{{Journey}} band]]:

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)", a song that is much darker than the band's more famous output, and awesome because of it.
* BeamMeUpScotty: Perry never said "I never felt part of the band". He really said “All these years, it’s funny—I never really felt part of it.” Even then, the line was actually [[QuoteMine taken out of context]] by [=VH1=]. What [[http://steveperryonline.net/index.php/2011/01/11/a-qa-with-steve-perry/ he really said]] was that he felt he wasn't part of the band ''at the time'' (he was talking about his early years with Journey).
* BrokenBase: See InternetBackdraft below.
** Also, fans of the better-known Perry-led pop era vs. fans of the earlier jazzy progressive era.
** Their 1986 album ''Raised on Radio''. Is it the band's {{Magnum Opus}}, a great follow up to ''Frontiers'', a worthy addition to their discography, or is it an awful glorified Steve Perry solo album?
* ColbertBump: The use of "Don't Stop Believing" in the final scene of ''TheSopranos'' instantly made the band a trendy discussion topic again. And then it happened again in the pilot of ''{{Glee}}'', which boosted the song to the number one Itunes download.
* EarWorm: "Just a small town girl..."
* EndingFatigue: "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'". The song repeats the same "Na na na" chorus over. And over. And ''over''. Good God, '''end''' it already.
* EpicRiff: the keyboard riffs for "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Separate Ways".
* FaceOfTheBand: Steve Perry, who was hired because the record company felt that Gregg Rolie wasn't distinctive enough and the band needed a clear front-man. Even after Perry left the band, he is still the member who is most associated with the band. To some extent, Journey's new lead singer Arnel Pineda has become this, as well, especially for Journey's non-US fans.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The band is currently far more popular in Europe than in the US, to the point that their 2011 tour only has 3 US dates, with all the rest being in Europe.
** This is a relatively new development. In the eighties, Journey toured almost exclusively in USA and Japan. The European AOR fans preferred {{Toto}} (still do, really).
* InternetBackdraft: Go ahead. [[SchmuckBait Mention Steve Augeri on any Steve Perry fan-group or YouTube vid.]]
** Or Arnel Pineda.
*** ...or the Filipinos being rabid and spamming "Proud to be Pinoy (slang for Filipino)" comments.
*** Or any of the Series/{{Glee}} covers of the Steve Perry-era songs.
*** Or mention that Journey had three albums before Steve Perry.
* MisattributedSong: Some people confuse this band with Music/{{Foreigner}} and misattribute songs like "Jukebox Hero" and "I Want to Know What Love Is" to this band.
** Music/{{Foreigner}}?? Try Music/{{Survivor}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e98UOB0etdo "Can't Hold Back"]], to the point that Survivor's lead singer was actively imitating Steve Perry.
* NeverLiveItDown: Although Jonathan Cain was reportedly upset when ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' tore into the much-derided [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LatorN4P9aA "Separate Ways"]] video (a staple of the early years of {{MTV}}), he has since admitted to being embarrassed by it.
-->"I'm at a loss to explain that video. I will never live down those air keyboards. No matter what else I've done in my career, sooner or later people find a way to ask me about the 'Separate Ways' video."
--->(from ''I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution'')
** However, [[WebVideo/TheMusicVideoShow The Music Video Show]] [[http://youtu.be/HmIUH-MV048 explains]] that the video is SoOkayItsAverage.
* SignatureSong: "Don't Stop Believing", without a doubt.
* TheWoobie: Steve Perry. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFtTOhOqWy0 Behind The Music]] is the best example of it, and his FanDumb responds accordingly.
* {{Wangst}}: Steve Perry's "I never felt part of the band" line comes off as this. At least until it was revealed that it was taken out of context (see BeamMeUpScotty).

!!The [[VideoGame/{{Journey}} video game]]:

* BestLevelEver: The Apotheosis stage and the level with the sandsurfing are the most likely to be brought up in conversation on forums, for nothing but the sheer levels of SceneryPorn and {{HSQ}} they contain.
* BreatherLevel: The Temple is a perfectly safe location wedged in-between two patrolled by the War Machines. Not to mention that it is literally overflowing with energy.
* CatharsisFactor: The makers of the game specifically said that they set themselves the challenge of crafting a game that was capable of generating catharsis.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Yes it's good enough to stand on the same page as the band Journey. It plays on a recurring motif that can be heard in its simplest form in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLfj3pAlrs4 Nascence]]", the first song, and at its most awe-inspiring in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypNgvc6c6Cc Apotheosis]]", the very last song.
** While all the music you hear throughout is amazing, the ending credits song "I Was Born For This" just tops them all. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_wkJ377LzU You can listen to it here]].
** Now has the honour of being the very first videogame soundtrack ''ever'' [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/06/journeys-soundtrack-nominated-for-a-grammy to be nominated for a Grammy Award]]! And not just some small obscure award either, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome it got nominated for Best Score]], placing Austin Wintory amongst heavyweights like JohnWilliams, HansZimmer, HowardShore and [[NineInchNails Trent Reznor]]. Not to mention that to be recognized alongside the former [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming was also a lifelong dream of Wintory's]].
* GoddamnedBats: The flying war machines. They can knock you miles away when you're trying to go somewhere else.
* HypeBacklash: Its winning of several major game of the year awards has not been met with blanket enthusiasm. Many commenters are accusing the writers of pandering to gaming hipsters and bringing up the ItsShortSoItSucks arguments.
* ItsShortSoItSucks: Costs $15 and you will most likely finish it in one sitting, but [[HolyShitQuotient what]] [[SceneryPorn a]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming sitting]] that is.
* NightmareFuel: For a game that up until that point is nothing but pleasant, [[spoiler:the war machines]] making their first appearance by ''[[JumpScare bursting out of the sand completely without any warning]]'' is responsible for ''quite'' a few pairs of [[BringMyBrownPants soiled pants]]. And the subsequent stealth-sections are almost ''worse''. It's even ''worse'' because their eyes look like the little symbols that make your scarf longer from a distance, and if you run towards them and don't realize what they are until it's too late there's no time for you to get away.
* StopHelpingMe: An interesting example, in that it's not only perpetrated by other players but is almost certainly done without malice: the second chapter features a bridge which, if crossed without repairing it completely, will reward a trophy. Unfortunately some nice person will often see you 'struggling' and take pity on you by fixing the bridge section you obviously didn't see, undermining the whole endeavour.
** Of course, you can go offline and get the achievement by yourself if other players continue to rebuild the bridge.
** Some more experienced players, upon observing they've been paired with a less experienced player, can be a little forceful, not giving the new player a chance to be the one to "sing" to release flags, flying carpets and reveal glyphs, rushing straight to the "solutions" to the puzzles and the locations of items rather than taking the back seat and allowing the newer player to work at their own pace.
